Investor Alert: Direxion Daily 7-10 Year Treasury Bull 3x Shares

Investor Alert: Direxion Daily 7-10 Year Treasury Bull 3x Shares (TYD), featured by top securities fraud attorneys, the White Law Group

Did your Broker Recommend investing in Direxion Daily 7-10 Year Treasury Bull 3x Shares (TYD)?  

Direxion Daily 7-10 Year Treasury Bull 3x Shares (TYD) is a leveraged bond that offers 2x long leveraged exposure to the broad-based Barclays Capital U.S. 20+ Year Treasury Index.  

An investment in leveraged debt can be a very risky one, as there are numerous factors that can converge to drastically change the returns of these products, according to its prospectus.   

Investing in leveraged bond ETFs requires a careful understanding of the specific economy, in this case the US, and what kind of policies and regulations are currently in place and are set to be enforced in the future. The prospectus claims that TMF can be a “powerful tool for sophisticated investors,” but should be avoided by those with a low risk tolerance or a buy-and-hold strategy.  

With a leveraged ETF the fund uses debt and derivatives to increase the returns of the underlying index at a ratio of 2-to-1 or even 3-to-1, instead of 1-to-1 like a regular ETF. The financial derivatives and debt used in these funds may amplify the risks, even as they have the potential to produce high gains. Leveraged ETFs also often come with higher expense ratios than regular ETFs.  

While a regular ETF tracking an index could fall 5%, a leveraged ETF would fall 10% or even 15%.  

Unfortunately for investors, Direxion Daily 7-10 Year Treasury Bull 3x Shares (TYD) is down –28.31% YTD.

It is possible that they could be found liable for investment losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
